Any Fixes For Dents In An Asphalt Driveway?

I was doing a basement renovation in a subburb west of Boston, had to get a dumpster swap one day and they put the new dumpster down off some skids we had the old one on. By the time this was noticed, there were small dents in the asphalt under two of the wheels. They are pretty smooth, no sharp edges, the wheels didnt cut through the drive, just sagged it a bit. Any possible fixes that anyone can think of, other than patching or repaving the whole thing? Thanks,

Best way depending on how bad it is would probably be just to get a propane burner to heat it with. Heat around the affected area and tamp it out a bit with a hand tamp. This is probably the cheapest way out.
